update on my unfill and thanksgiving pics

Okay, so it's almost two weeks later.  But I think this unfill has been good.  I got 1cc removed, which should leave me with 5.

Firstly, there was not an excessive amount of poking to find my port and remove liquid. YAY!

Secondly, I can still feel my band working (hamburger last night was almost an issue), but it's not as bad in the morning.  It's still tighter in the morning than later in the day, but oatmeal or yogurt doesn't hurt anymore.  so hallelujah!

Now, I need to get back to eating the right things, and back to the gym.  Yes I've lost 60lbs.. but I've still got 60 more to go.  As it stands right now I'm that statistic.  You know "most gastric banding patients lose 50% of their excess weight".   I went into this wanting to NOT be that statistic, and I need to make that happen!  So RAWR!

I can do this. It's not rocket science, it's just head science.

And no, I STILL don't have a new scale.  New house + new car = NO money.  I'm half tempted to put up a paypal donation button for a scale! LOL. not really, I know I can find the money.. just need to do it.. as with everything else <3

also also,

here's some pics from thanksgiving.  I decided to be all fancy!


  1. You look so skinny! And very pretty, ma'am :)

  2. Glad you're feeling better. Being too tight sucks. I'm always tight in the morning. I have to force myself to eat, but if I don't eat, I pay for it later with HUGE appetites.

  3. Wow! Like minds do think alike! :) Good for you in your rededication and refocus. It's totally worth it.

    PS: looking adorable in that fancy dress!

  4. Looking good sista :) And waaaay to identify and purpose NOT to be a part of that statistic, you totally can brush past it and more!

  5. You look great! I'm right there wight you. I've lost 61 pounds and have 62 to go. I will not be that statistic and I will make it to goal! We can do it!
